Rear Axle Boot???

Well I had my 05 Rhino (new to me) out for the first time. Was on a 50 mile ride at about 48 miles I thought I smelled burning oil, got out to check and found the boot on the driversí side axle had shredded and grease all over.
Here is the question...do I have to replace the axle or just the boot?

One more question at random times in the ride the Rhino would seem like the choke was on and getting too much fuel. I would stop and let it sit for a minute and it would be fine for miles...any Ideas.

Thanks
